Once again, I'm in my cycle of event-reaction-reflection with my characters. However, Leo isn't in the best of shape to reflect. Never try to out drink an elf. They aren't lightweights in this setting, apparently. He and Wren will be legends for a few weeks at the Inn of the Foxes.
Nyssa's two messages are letters of introduction and requests for an audience. Nyssa's original mission was to talk to representatives from the Realm Under the Mountain to see why they were threatening Varin. The mission has expanded, but Nyssa is keeping to the original plan. She can tell Count Varin truthfully that she tried to contact the reps. The Niceans are the latest being pulled into Sessarine's plot. Poor communication kills; Nyssa is trying to open up means to talk with everyone involved.
Galan's Shields are a mercenary company acting as the local town guard. The dwarves don't care about what happens in Silver Trailings as long as it doesn't affect trade. The merchants in Silver Trailings like it when their customers can walk down the street without being mugged. The coins that aren't taken by force can be spent at a number of shops. Dwarven-craft items, from utensils to weapons, are sold at a premium, but for far less than what they could sell for elsewhere.
Perry is pear cider as Kazi mentions, sort of. It's not a platypus or a former Canadian game show host. Perry proper is from the perry pear. Still, it's a nice addition to the setting; Wildwood has pear trees, not apple trees, and the elves craft cider from them. The little details make or break a setting. I got the idea from a King Arthur Pendragon campaign after my character purchased a lot of pear trees for his holding, and perry was one of the items that could be made from the harvest. My knight didn't hold his religious belief too high, but what can one expect from a family where my knight was the white sheep of the family. More bastards than legit children there.
